275.33 works SO well with my 8800gt. what about your card?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So i have an 8800gt, i know right. old. I have been playing dirt 3 lately on my sig rig at 1920x1080p 8xmsaa vsync on and on high settings.. I was recieving fps of 35-42 on average and because of this i was considering upgrading.

THEN COMES 275.33

Same settings after downloading these new drivers.. I start up dirt 3 for another 40fps session when i turn on fraps, load up BATTERSEA for some GYM and see a steady 55fps only dropping to 45fps when covered in donut smoke.

I am literally stoked at this.. and considering boosting it to ultra graphics anyone else had this kind of luck? What are your experiences?

Im so proud of my machine. Its nearly 4 years old and i havent upgraded once.. still being able to pull high enough fps to play smoothly on games. I havent tested another games yet but i will be soon

Is such boosts for all cards? The drivers that came with my 580 are 26X.XX

Are driver updates always worth it?

My 3dmark11 score went from P3460 to P3788 after I installed this driver.
Makes me happy!

They boast all performances upgrades here and there, but still, with 2x 580 @ 2560x1600 I can't manage to get over 30 FPS in Dragon Age 2. Thanks nVidia.

Sometimes you will get a driver that works really great with a certain game or app. Other times you might get one that boosts everything overall. I never really understood how or why. I just keep my drivers updated and hope for the best.

I don't know if they directly affect folding, but it allowed me to OC my 460 a little bit further with better stability and that made a slight improvement in my PPD.
